The resurgence of rock in most aspects of popularmusic has certainly not gone un-noticed by LemonJelly's Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen as 64-95is littered with epic guitars and explosive refrainsnestling amongst the downbeat soul for which they arebest known.Opener, "Come Down on Me", is tense, fiery and for themost part dominated by the partnership of crashingpower-chords and a lead synth that, while not abig-beat tune, wouldn't sound out of place on an oldLo-fi's or Chemical Brothers album. However, foranyone missing the sugary sweetness of LostHorizons, most of the album is business asusualstrict drum patterns and rolling, mesmeric loopsof lush strings, acoustic guitars (that sound great ifa little bit cheesy) and lovable bass hooks. "MakeThings Right" sums up a great deal of the music withits summery melody and reserved mid-tempo groove, thistrack being particularly reminiscent of classicNightmares on Wax. Among the deviations in formula are"The Shouty Song" which comes across as some sort ofharsh, contemporary jig and "The Slow Train" thatutilises a barber shop quartet to fantastic effect.From start to finish 64-95 is pretty muchdevoid of filler (the weaker tracks only being weakdue to other songs being better!) and it culminates inthe wondrous epic "Go", with the beat poet talents ofWilliam Shatner building to a crescendo that'll sendanyone home with a smile on their face. Another great collection that isn't too radical adeparture but doesn't rest on past successes, pushingLemon Jelly forward at their own pace.
'1964-1995' is Lemon Jelly's follow up to their Mercury Prize nominated 'Lost Horizons' album. Once again, the North London duo combine chilled-out beats with light atmospheric arrangements. Includes the single 'Stay With You'.

You thought you never needed a Bill Shatner tune till you get this . voted hot of course .:thumbsup:
Pretty good album but a big departure from their usual stuff. I think there's even a warning of that on the album cover.

Shame they are no more :(

Hot price.
Back up to 6.99 on HMV website
get the DVD, even better
Was dragged to see them when they played next door a few years ago, went to the balcony to lie down. Top musicians or designers? Neither. Too clean and middle-middle class. 'Pushy' was their best but nicked anyway from and no where near as good as:
